Promising spot-free, smooth skin, this Thirties suction machine consisted of tiny glass nozzles attached to a rubber hose and wired up to a vacuum pump. The suction did the rest

This Max Factor face pack was studded with plastic ‘ice’ cubes which could be filled with water before the mask was popped in the freezer. Hangover Heaven was popular with party-going Forties Hollywood stars

'Slenderising salons' in the Forties had all manner of weight-loss treatments, from full-body wraps to chairs which massaged your legs with metal rollers

The Thirties equivalent of a rowing machine. Two bandages (one for the feet and one for the neck) joined by a metal spring

Dimples ‘to order’ while you sleep! Designed in 1936, it consisted of a spring, worn round the jaw, with two tiny knobs which pressed into the cheeks

The Forties Glamour Bonnet promised a rosy complexion by lowering atmospheric pressure around the head, mimicking the effect of a brisk walk in the mountains
Launched in July 1940, this creepy headdress could be plugged in and switched on to heat the face and head, the aim being to stimulate circulation, leaving skin looking fresh

To get the tightly curled style of the day, pre-war women would spend hours having each section of hair individually set with the help of contraptions made of dozens of heating tongs


'Freezing' freckles off with carbon dioxide was popular in the Thirties. While it was applied, patients eyes were covered with airtight plugs and their nostrils filled in for protection. They had to breathe through a tube

Before sun cream, bathers found other means of covering up. In the Forties, the Freckleproof Cape offered protection from the sun, plus built-in sunglasses

#it is also the ‘i have a live laugh love decoration somewhere in my house’#’i have a child named caedyn’


#Wall decals about bible verses will class up any kitchen #You should come to my Thirty-One party

I can’t stop. There are too many:
#I’m the best mom on this field trip and everyone knows it #Have you read Eat, Pray, Love? #Let’s get lattes after Zumba! #Gluten causes Autism #I will have him pulled out of your class #Oh shoot, I forgot I volunteered to bring brownies to faith group tonight #We don’t let him watch more than one hour of TV a day #Stick figure family window sticker #(whispers behind hand) you’ve got to read 50 Shades of Grey
Forgive me. I am a mother, and I walk among these women every day. I have adopted their ways as a form of camouflage.
